Theft Suspect Tonisha Harris Connected to Missing Mom
DAYTON -- Police say the only person who may know what really happened to missing mom Nichelle McKnight and her 4 year old is Tonisha Harris.
According to Dayton police, Harris was dating Antwan Anderson and together they are responsible for Nichelle and Zaden's disappearance, and probable death.
Dayton Police detectives say 24-year-old McKnight and her 4 year old are victims of a homicide. Before this young mom and her son disappeared, police say 29-year-old Tonisha Harris was stealing McKnight's money.
Right now, Harris is charged with three felony counts of theft, identify theft and receiving stolen property.
"They was taking money out her account with her card. Whether it was going to the store and purchasing something then getting cash back or the ATM," Nichelle's mother, Michelle Williams, explained on Tuesday.
Harris is no stranger to breaking the law.
"She has five arrests by us including a misdemeanor theft conviction in 2013 and a felony forgery in 2010," Dayton Police Chief Richard Biehl said.
And that's not all. In 2007, she was profiled in an ABC 22/FOX 45 news feature 'Fugitive Files'. Then a 22-year-old Harris was wanted by police for stealing from an elderly person. At the time she was also on probation for stealing a car and illegally handling a firearm.
We went to Harris' neighborhood Wednesday to learn more about her. Neighbors say she's lived there for about six months and she's been open about her troubled past. Recently, she's been working to get her life on track, going to school, and taking care of her three kids. Her friend tells us she had only been dating Anderson for a week.
And police say Harris and Anderson together are responsible for the McKnights' disappearance two weeks ago.
Today, investigators may be closer to the truth about what happened to McKnight and her son, and police are working to bring the young mom and her son home.
Harris is being held on $250,000 bond.
